FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

I start my column this month with a great result.

As members are aware, the Association regularly lobbies various industry participants on issues of concern raised by both our members and the Association on their behalf.

I am pleased to advise that following our lobbying of the Australian Turf Club (ATC), escalators have been installed in the front of the grandstand which now allows easy access to the racetrack side of the stand for owners.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the ATC for always listening to the concerns of owners.  The Association greatly appreciates the wonderful working relationships our organisations have.  We are hopeful that in the future the ATC may be able to make available an additional area to accommodate larger groups of owners including, in particular, syndicates.

Whilst speaking about the ATC, what a fantastic Autumn Carnival we are having?  At the time of writing we are up to Day 4, Golden Slipper day this Saturday, following three great days racing in the three weeks prior.  Many new and exciting stars are currently gracing our tracks and I for one can’t wait until Saturday to see the best two-year-olds in the land racing for one of the most coveted prizes in racing, the Golden Slipper.  I look forward to seeing you at the track.

I would also like to update members on the Racing NSW review of Handicapping and Benchmarking.

As advised last month, the Association made a submission to Racing NSW and RICG which was very well received and has been incorporated into the next update of the progress paper.  We will also be making a further submission once additional information becomes available.

We invite members to contribute any thoughts they may have on this very important topic for the Committee to consider.

Our thanks again to former Committee Member Mr Louis Mihalyka for his excellent work on this project.

 

On behalf of our Members, NSWROA is grateful for the sponsorship and support of Luxbet.

SPECIAL FEATURE: THE ALL AGED STAKES AND THE CHAMPAGNE STAKES



As a preamble to our annual Autumn Carnival function on 18 April, our good friend and NSWROA member, Mr Graham Caves, has kindly prepared for the interest of members the following item.

* * * * * *

When we roll up for a splendid day's racing on April 18 at our Sydney Autumn Carnival function at Randwick we will be witnessing another chapter in the long history of two old-established feature races.

On the program will be the All-Aged Stakes, a Group 1 weight-for-age race of 1400 metres, which was first run in 1866. Many a champion has won this race and most folk today would not be aware that it is a race, as its name suggests, open to horses of all ages, including two-year-olds.

I can't tell you the last youngster to take the challenge but it was probably about 100 years ago. There were plentiful winners of that age until the turn of last century and I can tell you the last winning two-year-old was Charles Stuart in 1905 when the race was run over a mile (1600m).
 
Just a few of the notable winners of the All-Aged Stakes are Briseis, Carbine, Marvel, Wakeful, Woorak, Desert Gold, Beauford, The Hawk, Valicare, Limerick, Amounis, Winooka, Chatham, Peter Pan, Cuddle, Ajax, Bernborough, San Domenico, Tulloch, Lord, Sky High, Kilshery, Wenona Girl, Tobin Bronze, Tontonan, Dalrello, Emancipation, Shaftesbury Avenue, Rough Habit, Sunline, Private Steer, Racing to Win, Hot Danish, Hay List, Atlantic Jewel, All Too Hard and last year's winner Hana's Goal. Wouldn't you like to own one of those?

The Champagne Stakes once had a quirk to it. It wasn't in the race conditions but was an accepted practice for the owner of the winner to present the AJC Committee with a celebration of two dozen bottles of champagne. That tradition stemmed from the English version of the race but like many traditions has passed into history.

Historians argue on the first running of the Champagne Stakes but in its formal conditions the ATC lists the first running as 1864, won by the great Yattendon. The race has had distance changes aplenty but settled into a race of six furlongs (1200m) in 1883 and stayed at that distance until 1972 when it changed to 1600 metres. 

The race was one of the two major races for two-year-olds at the Sydney autumn meeting, there was no Golden Slipper until 1957.
 
Memorable winners of the Champagne Stakes were Robinson Crusoe, Chester, Rudolph, Aurum, Charles Stuart, Woorak, Furious, Heroic, Manfred, Mollison, Hall Mark, Ajax, High Caste, Flight, Magnificent, Temeraire, True Course, Todman, Wiggle, Noholme, Sky High, Bogan Road, Time and Tide, Eye Liner, Storm Queen, Vain, Baguette, Luskin Star, Red Anchor, Bounding Away, Triscay, Tierce, Burst, Intergaze, Dance Hero, Samantha Miss and Pierro, while last year Go Indy Go was successful.


Famous brothers Todman and Noholme both won the Champagne Stakes

 

INGLIS PREMIER YEARLING SALE REPORT



Former NSWROA Committee member, Mr Louis Mihalyka of Laurel Oak Bloodstock, attended the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale and has kindly prepared for the interest of members, the following item.

* * * * * *

If you have read my sales reports for the first three major yearling sales this year, you can just about guess the content of this report on the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale. The story is the same, just the names and numbers vary.

In Australia there is a fairly clear pecking order now for the top four yearling sales. In order they are Inglis Easter, Magic Millions January, Inglis Melbourne Premier and Inglis Classic.

While there are other yearling sales on the calendar, many owners and trainers do not expect to be able to compete with the high-priced Magic Millions January and Inglis Easter buyers. Consequently they focus on the Inglis Classic and then Melbourne Premier as their best options for buying quality yearlings. As a result many buyers now treat the Melbourne Premier as “Last Chance Saloon” in their annual buying. This in turn means huge demand as many buyers know that if they do not buy here they have little prospect of buying later in the year.

Similar to the Magic Millions and Inglis Classic, the pre-sale viewings and the number of prospective buyers at the Premier Sale made it very clear that prices would be a strong sale and prices would be up. And so it proved as the sale unfolded, and that is reflected in the final statistics.

In the three-day main session there were 561 lots offered, six up on last year, with 458 sold, being a clearance rate of 82%, the same as last year. The strength of the sale was reflected in a 19.2% increase in aggregate to $44,507,500.

The sale average was $97,003, up 16.4% from 2014, and the median jumped a hefty 23% to $80,000. The top-priced lot was $560,000 for a Snitzel filly, sold to South African interests, and this was well up on last year’s $450,000 top-priced lot. While buyers came from all over the world, the strong VOBIS influence in this sale translated to 45% of the sales gross being spent by Victorians.

Like so many sales now, there were a lot of modest horses in the sale, which in general are unlikely to rise to greatness although amongst them there will no doubt be a few gems. For those horses that buyers considered to be the best chances to be the top performers, there was massive demand which is the hallmark of all the major yearling sales lately. If you are a genuine buyer, and you find a horse that you really like, then you have to steel yourself to be strong in the bidding, otherwise you are likely to go home empty-handed or with a horse that you are not so confident about.

The Australian yearling sales to-date, as well as New Zealand’s Karaka, augur well for a very strong Inglis Easter Sale, as that sale attracts the highest-profile international buyers who are prepared to pay for the cream of the crop.

Having attended the Melbourne Premier Sale for many years, it is astounding to think that next year the average is likely to reach $100,000. Around twenty years ago I remember going there and the sale average was $10,000, and with $20,000 budget to spend, I felt like the king of the castle! Those were the days my friend……..!

 

THE CHAMPIONSHIPS 4 AND 11 APRIL 2015



In what has been termed the “Grand Finals of Australian Racing” with some $20 million in prizemoney on offer, The Championships hosted by Australian Turf Club at Royal Randwick Racecourse, is quickly becoming one of the most competitive racing carnivals in the world for local, national and international participants.

Now into its second year, The Championships features twelve Championship races including eight Group 1 events, staged across two first-class Saturdays in April.  It is a dazzling array of time honoured races across each age and distance category.

In a new initiative for 2015, two components have been added to The Championships - the Country Championships Series Final and the Provincial Championships Series Final.

The respective series will feature seven country races (plus a bonus wild-card race) and five provincial races held across the State with the winners and placegetters invited to participate in the finals on Day 1 & 2 of The Championships at Royal Randwick.

The Country and Provincial Championships were created to support and promote NSW racing in the country and provincial areas.

For further details regarding The Championships, visit the website www.thechampionships.com.au.

 

2015 MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL REMINDER

A reminder to members that 2015 membership renewal fees are now due.

To those of our members who have already renewed your membership our thanks – your support of the Association is greatly appreciated.

 

INDUSTRY UPDATES

Hereunder for the interest of members are some recent industry items:

Watch NSW Racing wherever you are
Racing NSW has announced that NSW Thoroughbred racing is now being broadcast live through the Racing NSW website www.racingnsw.com.au on any device – mobile, tablet or computer.  The availability of live broadcasts is additional to the highly popular video form and race replay service currently available through the Racing NSW website.  In addition, NSW Thoroughbred racing will be showcased on Sky Channel’s Sky Racing World Channel 521 on Foxtel and Austar, free of an additional subscription fee.

ATC Secures Light Rail Link and Car Park for Royal Randwick
The Australian Turf Club (ATC) has formalised its support for the NSW Government’s CBD and South East Light Rail project in a major win for patrons and users of Royal Randwick racecourse.  Royal Randwick Racecourse will be accessible from three light rail stops after the successful completion of negotiations between the ATC and the NSW Government over the project.  Under a deal struck with Transport for NSW, the main gates to Royal Randwick in Alison Road will be accessible seven days a week, via a purpose built station and pedestrian crossing directly opposite on the northern side of Alison Road.  It will mean visitors to Royal Randwick will have quick and modern public transport access to and from Central Station and the CBD, as well as Kensington and Kingsford.  Two other stops around Royal Randwick will be situated near the intersections of Alison and Wansey Rds, along with another at High Street and Wansey Road.  Services will run on the 12km line from Circular Quay, through the CBD and into the eastern suburbs, with services running every four minutes during peak hours. As part of the agreement, the NSW Government will use sections of land on the western side of the racecourse as stabling areas for light rail carriages and associated amenities.  A new multi-storey, 535-space car park will be built by the ATC to replace existing areas of parking on racecourse land that will be lost as a direct result of the light rail works.

Australian Racing Conference – 21-23 May 2015 – Brisbane
The Australian Racing Conference is the largest national symposium for the thoroughbred racing industry. It brings together racing administrators, clubs, track managers, commercial stakeholders, media and government, owners, breeders and racing enthusiasts to discuss and debate topical issues and key areas of administration relevant to the industry.  The 2015 conference will be held at the Sofitel Brisbane Central between 21 – 23 May.  For further details visit the website www.australianracingconference2015.com.au.

Canterbury Park gets green light to host state of the art equine quarantine centre
Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club (ATC) have obtained federal government approval to host an equine quarantine, training and stabling facility – set to be among the best of its type in Australia - ahead of The Championships.  The centre at Canterbury Park, which opened on 25 February, has been designed and purpose built by Racing NSW and ATC staff.  It has a capacity to immediately accommodate up to 12 horses in custom-made areas developed from one of three existing stable blocks on the course.  Among some of the features of the new quarantine facility is a self-contained horse surgery, a scrubbing room and showers for veterinary, quarantine and stable staff, and a state of the art digital security and surveillance centre.  The centre has space in two more stable blocks for further development.

 

BOBS & BOBS EXTRA UPDATE


Update by Michelle Greene, Racing NSW Marketing Executive

 

One of three BOBS winners at Royal Randwick, Cartier Rock was fantastic as the well-bred filly rocked punters banking an imposing $10,000 BOBS bonus.

Showing a fine turn of foot to win the $40,000 Schweppes Handicap (1100m) for juveniles, the Gerald Ryan-trained Cartier Rock ($12) disposed of her rivals defeating David Payne’s More Than Fabulous.  A terrific ride by premier jockey Brenton Avdulla who guided her through a gap, Cartier Rock sprinted to the line fast to record a 1-3/4 length win.
 
The $420,000 Magic Millions purchase is beginning to show brilliant speed and possess Stakes grade appeal as she secured her first metropolitan win.  The well-bred BOBS hopeful had been to the races on one previous occasion yielding a fifth place finish at Rosehill Gardens.

The daughter of champion sire Fastnet Rock out of Miss Judgement fine-tuned her craft and is now heading to higher honours, the two-year-old already coming a long way in such a short time.

Meanwhile, another impressive BOBS horse, Federal, after a provincial win and two placings from six starts also secured a red-hot $10,000 bonus.  The three-year-old bay gelding was steered to victory at Royal Randwick by in-form Godolphin hoop James McDonald ahead of the Gary Nickson-trained Mandalong Kiss in the 1200metre Suzanne Wilkins Recognition Handicap.  With no ground wasted, the Medaglia D’Oro gelding took an easy win along the rails with trainer O’Shea preparing him for a promising autumn season.

The start of the BOBS threefold attack at Randwick and a new BOBS entrant was Kind Heart who took out the opening race.  Another $10,000 BOBS bonus was banked as the three-year-old filly coming out of barrier 10 was steered to its first win by Hugh Bowman, off five starts and two placings.  The lightly raced John Thompson-trained galloper outraced other BOBS contenders Puzzle Wonder and the O’Shea-trained Accuse.

Miss Marple retains the led on the BOBS Bonus scoreboard sitting firmly on $45,000 with three wins followed closely by Centre Point, Malice and World Wide all tied on $40,000 off two wins.
